Reliant Medical’s Dr. Fisher Named 2017 “Immunization Champion”

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

 

Dr. Lloyd Fisher

Worcester doctor Lloyd Fisher, M.D., of Reliant Medical Group has been honored by the Massachusetts Adult Immunization Coalition as 2017 Massachusetts Adult Immunization Champions. 

The awards recognized individuals or organizations that have made contributions to foster adult immunization in Massachusetts through leadership, innovation, or advocacy. 

Fisher will receive his award at the Massachusetts Adult Immunization Conference to be held on April 25 in Marlboro. 

Lloyd Fisher 

Dr. Fisher is the Assistant Medical Director for Informatics at Reliant Medical.  

He incorporates tools into the practice’s electronic health records system to improve on-time vaccination rates for all of the group’s 300,000 patients.  By providing reminders to providers that appear at every clinical visit, Fisher increased promotion of vaccine administration along with reports to identify and reach out to patients who have not received their vaccinations. 

Along with his application of health information technology, Fisher also served as principal investigator for a study evaluating the reasons why adults do not get flu and pneumonia shots.  

His findings led to automated methods to remind patients of scheduled vaccinations, with the result that Reliant now has some of the highest immunization rates in the nation.

Nursing Staff at Boston Health Care for the Homeless Wins 

The other winners of the award were the nursing staff at the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. 

They are being honored for its response in February of 2016 to an outbreak of meningitis in the homeless population in Boston that caused five deaths.
